Madhava having heard the pregnant words of Bukka,
praised him and replied gladly:
" Listen with calm understanding to my words that deal
with the purusarfha ; here is my younger brother, Sayan-
acarya, foremost among the learned men.
" 0 ! King! desirous of learning the purusarihas, in the
Puranas and Upapitrattas* I have given instruction to him ; and
he will tell you the stories."
Thus having cheered the King, he cast a glance at
Sayanarya; and Sayana having bowed down to his brother
addressed the king, Bukka.
The king, Bukka, heard the Punwtarta-Sttclhanidki as
related by Madhava [Sayana ?]-arya and felt very much
He told his illustrious teacher Madhava: " 0 ! best among
the learned men! I feel satisfied with your valuable stories
and have learned many that teach the purusartka.
" I think you are adding to the glory of your elder brother
Madhava as Upendra did to Indra. "
